In this article, we will show you some tricks and useful tips for the air conditioner.

Some will help you save on electricity. And others just to have more comfort.

Because you need an air conditioner on very hot days, the electricity bill may cause you great inconvenience.

The first tip is to install a wifi module for air conditioning.

Imagine the following. It is extremely hot and you enter the house knowing that you will have air conditioning.

Turn on the air conditioning and set it to many degrees less than the outside temperature and the electricity consumption of course will be high.

In the version where you have a wifi module for air conditioning, you can control it from your smartphone and turn it on an hour before you get home.

From the application on the phone, you set the desired temperature that you want you will find in the house. So be smart and buy air conditioning with wifi.

What is the optimal temperature for air conditioning?

When you use air conditioning the higher the temperature, the less electricity you consume, and the lower the bill. According to international standards, it is recommended that the set air conditioning temperature not be below 25 degrees. So don’t set it to 18 degrees because you will consume more electricity.

It is also good to use a chandelier with a fan or room fan because it helps to even out the temperature in the room.

Pull the curtains and drapes.

If there is no one in the house or when you are away from home, it is better to keep the curtains and drapes drawn.

Keeping direct sunlight away from your home will reduce the work that air conditioning has to do.

Here are other ways to keep the sun away.

  • Close windows and doors from the sun.
  • Pull the curtains and drapes
  • Use colored curtains that reflect sunlight. You can also use foil on the windows. This foil will not allow the sun’s rays to enter the house.
  • If possible, postpone activities that produce high heat, such as baking, etc.
  • When the days are very hot, postpone them for the evening.

When people say it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity in the air, they’re right. It is best to buy a dehumidifier.

It is recommended to use it when it is very hot. Lowering the humidity in the house will make you feel much more comfortable. This way you will be able to set the air conditioner to a higher temperature when using the dehumidifier.

Clean the air conditioner periodically

When using air conditioning, check the filters every month and clean them if necessary.

Take a look at the condensate tray inside the split. Wipe it with a damp cloth or sponge. This helps the condensate to drain better and prevents mold.

When you have dirty air conditioner filters, the electricity consumption may increase by 10-15%, and the life of the appliance will decrease. Fortunately, it is quite cheap to change the filters on the air conditioner or at least clean them in early summer.

Replace the air conditioner if it is old.

If the device is older than ten years or if it breaks down very often, it is good to upgrade.

Look for appliances that have high efficiency and low power consumption.

Check prices at online stores and user reviews.

Buy the air conditioner in advance.

In the hot season, the companies that install air conditioners are usually very crowded.

Rules to be followed when installing wall-mounted Split Air Conditioners.

These air conditioners consist of two units.

The UI is the inner unit and the UE is the outer unit.

This type of equipment is installed in living spaces, offices, shops, schools, etc.

After purchasing an air conditioner, it is necessary to follow certain strict rules when installing them, if we want the device to operate at normal parameters and to enjoy a pleasant and comfortable environment.

Please note that if the equipment has been purchased and will be installed, it must only be installed by qualified personnel. The persons authorized for the installation of air conditioners may be authorized natural persons or authorized companies.

We recommend that you do not install equipment with unprepared people, if you install equipment with unauthorized persons, you risk losing the warranty and having a defective air conditioner immediately after installation.

Installation of the two air conditioning units, UI and UE

The indoor unit will be mounted on the wall, at “level” without inclinations, only the condensate tube coming out of the indoor unit must be placed on the wall, on a slope, to allow water to drain from the condensate.

Don’t make the mistake of installing a single air conditioner in the hallway or other hallway. It will never give efficiency and the energy consumption will be much above normal, the device will be fully charged.

The ideal solution is to install an air conditioner in each room. In this way, you will be able to control correctly and economically the environment in your home.

Outdoor unit

The outdoor unit will not be installed in the room, enclosed balconies, cellars, warehouses, basements, etc.

It will not stick to the wall, and it will not be buried in the wall. Keep certain distances that are specified in the technical data sheet of the equipment. This also applies to the indoor unit.

The outdoor unit will be installed as far as possible below the indoor unit. If this is not possible, a siphon will be made at the refrigeration path, in copper pipes, at the connections in the outdoor unit, at the taps. In technical terms, it is also called a loop, a swan’s neck.

This loop is designed to prevent the oil in the compressor from going into the indoor unit.

When installing with a long vertical refrigeration path, siphons will be made every 2 meters, it will have the same purpose, to allow the recovery of oil from the compressor.

For long refrigeration routes, where we use elbows, tees, plugs, where their connection is used by brazing, nitrogen will be used in the installation. Nitrogen prevents the formation of slag which is abrasive, damaging the compressor clogging the filters.

The refrigerated pipe, with the dimensions provided in the technical book, will be used for the refrigeration route. Pressure tests will be performed along the route after the refrigeration connection.

After that the route will be emptied, the valves will be opened to enter refrigerant in the route and if the route is longer than provided in the technical specifications of the air conditioner, then it will be calculated per additional linear meter of pipe and will be completed with refrigerant.

If the equipment has lost coolant and does not have the required amount, this is new equipment that is installed for the first time, do not allow it to be filled with freon.

The freon that is in the installation will be recovered, emptied and the quantity that is written on the device will be weighed.

The refrigerant of the new air conditioners is environmentally friendly and consists of two freons, so it will be recharged in quantity.

It will be connected to the power supply exactly as it is written in the technical book of the air conditioner.
